Fisker has announced it has rolled out its 5,000th Ocean electric SUV from the Magna Steyr manufacturing plant in Graz, Austria. This marks a notable increase from the 3,123 customer vehicles produced at the facility as of early September, at which time the automaker revealed plans to boost customer deliveries of the Ocean to 300 vehicles per day later this year.
This increase in production is a significant step forward for the EV startup, which had previously delivered a total of 900 customer vehicles in its European and US launch markets. The company now expects to deliver “several hundred more” vehicles in the coming weeks.
“We are expanding both our teams and our physical locations, and we are targeting deliveries of 300 vehicles per day to meet strong demand for the Fisker Ocean. I’m tremendously pleased that our company has geared up to achieve these milestones,” said CEO Henrik Fisker.
However, notably absent from the press release was any mention of Canadian deliveries. The company had previously said it intended to begin deliveries in Canada as early as September 7, the date at which they expected to complete homologation procedures with Transport Canada. As the end of September approaches we have yet to hear of Fisker receiving Transport Canada certification.
The Fisker Ocean One, the launch edition of the Fisker Ocean Extreme, features a 113 kWh battery pack and an EPA range of 360 miles (579km). It will come in four different variants in Canada, starting at C$43,999 for the base model, all the way up to C$89,999 for the top-of-the-line model.
